With the Bombay High Court dismissing former Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal’s plea to delay the ongoing rape trial last week, his defence lawyers on Monday began cross-examining the victim.
Both the prosecution and the defence lawyers did not comment on the cross-examination, though they confirmed the proceedings have started. According to sources, the cross-examination is expected to take as many as three days, after which, the prosecution will list their witnesses. Of the over 100 odd witnesses in the case, the prosecution has lined up 75 to be questioned.
